Yoga is one of many interventions that has been implemented in Ysgol Y Deri.
This gentle therapeutic practise has been very beneficial for our students in many different areas of their life.
Children/young people who are experiencing developmental and emotional challenges often present a variety of symptoms. These often include a high state of stress and reactivity. They can present a state of low/ high energy or disorganised state. Regular yoga practise gently rests the nervous system creating a feeling of calm state and ability to cope better with others and the environment around them.
Benefits and aims of this therapeutic yoga include:
Improving motor planning and control
Developing the ability to self-regulate across environments and demands
Developing head, neck and upper trunk control
Enhancing a sense of wellbeing, calm and alert state
We are able to offer one to one and group yoga sessions depending on the child/young adult needs and abilities.
